Recommended Newcastle United Books
Newcastle: My Kind of Toon
Sir Bobby Robson is the Toon's favourite son. Universally loved and respected, his popularity embraces the town as much as Newcastle United, a football club he managed with great distinction. His book is an inspiring portrait in words and pictures of a large vibrant city in the north east, proud of it's history, it's architecture, it's culture and it's great football club.
Newcastle United: Fifty Years of Hurt
When Newcastle United crashed out of the FA Cup in Cardiff in April 2005, it was official: the second best-supported club in England and the eleventh richest in the world had completed 50 years without winning a domestic trophy. Since their last success - an FA Cup win in 1955 - no less than thirty-two clubs have won one of the three major prizes in the English game, but not the Magpies. In that half century, they've employed some of the biggest names in world football, yet most of their fanatical supporters have never seen them win a pot. In 2004, Sir Bobby Robson paid the price for failing to bring the Holy Grail to the Geordie faithful.
Jackie Milburn: A Man of Two Halves
Written by his own son, "Jackie Milburn: A Man of Two Halves" gives an unprecedented insight into the life and career of legendary Newcastle United forward Jackie Milburn. To this day, "Wor Jackie" remains the Magpies top goalscorer, having notched up 238 goals in 492 League and Cup appearances throughout the 1950s. Milburn also won the FA Cup with Newcastle three times in six years and, in the third final in 1955, he scored one of the competition's fastest-ever goals, after 45 seconds. This book delves beneath the surface of the glory to reveal how, in spite of his remarkable success as a player, Milburn was constantly tortured by his lack of self-belief.
